Mark, an American/Greek traveler, shares his adventure hiking from Skógar, through the Fimmvöduháls glacial pass and down into Thórsmörk, the Valley of Thor. We caught up with Mark and he shared some of his insights from the trip.
What motivated you to visit Iceland?
The pictures were the main draw. A friend of ours visited Iceland a few years ago. We were really inspired by her pictures: it seemed like such a different place to visit. We also enjoy hiking and the outdoors in general, so it seemed like a great fit. It’s pretty amazing to see so many different landscapes in one place. I also got a pretty big reaction from the pictures I posted, and people have said: “oh, I have never thought of going to Iceland, but I kinda wanna go now!”
